Hi Marco - are you able to take a screenshot of the Network tab of the developer console and send that?
Hello - please refer to the Troubleshooting Guide and follow the steps outlined there. Hopefully that'll help you resolve your issue: community.appian.com/.../rich-text-editor-component-plug-in-troubleshooting-guide
I'm trying to use this plug-in but when I add the richTextField component to an interface nothing is displayed:
Can you please advise what I am missing.
Hi Marco - I see a 403 error in the console which means some request was forbidden. To understand where that's coming from, can you show us the output of the Network tab please?
Can you inspect the icon of the image that is being displayed and let us know what the source is?
It should be in the format of:
https://yoursite.appiancloud.com/suite/doc/1234where "1234" is a the ID of the uploaded Appian document on your site. If that's the case, you need to set the conf.content.download.byId property to true and restart your site. That can be accomplished with an Appian Support ticket if you don't have access to restart the server.

Have you deployed the Appian Connected System - Rich Text Editor plugin and properly configured a connected system for that plugin, which you pass to the rich text editor SAIL component?
